Cleverley made 22 Premier League appearances last season but struggled to find consistent form as the Red Devils endured a miserable campaign under David Moyes.

However, the 24-year-old is confident he can flourish under the former Netherlands boss, telling the press: "I watched the manager's Holland team in the World Cup and from that I think I'm going to be his type of player.
"I have to show that in training and, most importantly, games. I think there's a place for me but I have to prove it."
After missing out on a spot in Roy Hodgson's England squad for the World Cup, Cleverley feels refreshed after a longer summer.
"I managed to have a good break and recharge my batteries," he continued. "Now we're back and all trying to impress the boss.
"We know what he wants - a passing and moving style. He's very clear and we have a good group of lads who are willing to learn. We made a good start the other night [in a 7-0 win over LA Galaxy] and we'll see how we go from there."
